Though Oscar-winning special effects powerhouse Stan Winston unfortunately passed away back in 2008, his legacy lives on in the Stan Winston School of Character Arts, which is dedicated to teaching budding young artists the tricks of the Hollywood trade. The school is always encouraging even those who are unable to attend to hone their skills and practice their craft, and their most recent internet challenge tasked artists to come up with and design original monsters of their very own.
Dubbed the 'Weird Monster Art' challenge, artists were allowed to depict their creations any way they saw fit, whether they wanted to draw them on paper, turn their friends into the creatures or sculpt them out of clay. Just yesterday all five winners were posted on the school's website, and the prize for each of them is one month of free training at the school.
Check out the winners below and head over to the Stan Winston School of Character Arts Facebook page to see all 35 entries!
